. facebook is now in over 80 languages, right to left languages. 60 in the middle of nairobi. it is on a giant flat screen and monitored in somebody's office in palo alto. it is on a tabloid. it is on a new galaxy iv. the media needs to be something that can work wherever it goes. when we look at designing new features for facebook, we look at things that are simple to use as speech, like commenting, liking, sharing, or sending. we do not create new words. we do not create a new name for a product that is just about commenting are just about messaging. our messages product is called messages. our news feed product is called newsfeed. our photos product is called photos. it might sound silly, but in discussions, there is sort of an inherent bias for builders to create something that it has its own brand. facebook started from the idea that it should be like a glass that is clean. and as much as possible, relays the intention of the sender. >> i want to talk a little bit about the diversity of users that facebook has now. everyone in this room -- did they get a smart phone and
